's a tremendous duty. you've got a congress that has spent two years debating. we've written legislative language. i do want to hearken back to the fact that i offered back a bill that laid out all of these entitlement reforms that lamar supported but also revenues of almost a trillion dollars. i gave a copy of that bill to the white house -- >> right now to the u.s. senate. senators approved an extension of the foreign intelligence surveillance act, now considering amendments to a $60 billion hurricane ike sandy package. we expect a vote on two amendments to the hurricane relief bill. those from oklahoma senator tom coburn. for disaster assistance. it also would require the federal agencies to review and recompete no-bid contracts that have been awarded prior to it. so it doesn't -- there's no penalty if a no-bid contract, but as that goes forward, additions -- additional payments on that would have to come into review. all this is, is about good government, about getting value for the dollars that we're going to spend. i reserve the balance of my time. the presiding officer: who yields time in

of it. i viewed him as an almost irreplaceable resource in this debate. he knows more about our federal budget and the deficit challenge we face than any member of congress. period. all the rest of us have learned so much from him, and we're certainly going to miss him. but we need to continue this effort that he started to reduce the deficit. we need to look seriously at our entitlement programs so that at the end of the day we meet our obligation to future generations. social security is solvent for 20 years. we should make it solvent for 75. and we can do it. if we face it today, we can do it. i think we ought to have a separate commission taking a look at this challenge, reporting back to congress and entertaining alternatives and substitutes on the floor that will meet, certify to meet the same goal. that is important. we also know that medicare in 12 years will not have the resources it needs to meet its obligations. 40 million or 50 million americans depend on it for, literally for their life and death issues when it comes to health care. we need to work on that immediately to de

'll negotiate over many things, i will not have another debate with this congress over whether or not they should pay the bills that they've already racked you have. if congress refuses to give the united states government the ability to pay these bills on time, the consequences for the entire global economy would be catastrophic. people will remember in 2011, the last time this course of action was done, our entire recovery was put at risk. >> brian: he won't hear of a debt ceiling debate. your response? >> in this case, i'm going to be a little bit more with the president than you might expect. the conservative position from my view is you pass a budget that has in the budget, when it leaves the house, a debt ceiling increase in it. you send it over to the senate and say, look, we want to have that debt ceiling increased. it goes with the budget and thus, the president has an opportunity to get them simultaneously. that's the change we've got to make. we've got to get to where when the house votes on appropriations and budget, ultimately we're voting on what we agree to spend
